MINNESOTA: Lesbian Unseats Anti-LGBT US House Rep

Chris Johnson reports at the Washington Blade:

A lesbian candidate running for a U.S. House seat in Minnesota has unseated an anti-LGBT lawmaker from the U.S. House, making her poised to become the first openly gay mother in Congress.

At a around 8:15 local time, major media outlets declared Angie Craig, a business executive who’s also mother, the winner in her bid to unseat Rep. Jason Lewis (R-Minn.) and represent Minnesota’s 2nd congressional district.

Lewis has an anti-LGBT history as a radio host before he came to Congress, according to a Buzzfeed News report. In 2013, Lewis said gay rights activists were “shredding the Constitution,” and same-sex parents “could harm the kid.”
